Hip switches (keeping legs off of the ground)
Triangle sit ups (keeping arms off the ground)
Burpees and Divebombers in the same circuit? Now thats brutal .

5x5 on hvy bag

It's getting up from the sprawls afterwards that gets me!
Just did this yesterday:
Circuit-style workout, so I do each exercise in the sequence listed with as little rest as possible. First I Skip rope for 10 mins to warm up, then I do 4 rounds total- 1 round w/half weight to warm up, 3 at listed weight.
-Flat bench, 100 lb. dumbells, 9 reps
-Weighted dips, 45 lbs, 7-8 reps
-Cable Flys, 40 lbs each, 7-8 reps
-"Arnold" style shoulder presses, 50 lb dumbells, 7 reps
-Shrugs, 100 lb dumbells
-Single leg squats, 50 lb dumbells, 8 reps/leg
-Deadlift, 335 lbs, 5 reps
-Full contact twists, 50 lbs on bar
-15 full situps
-35 lb "plate drops", 10 reps
-I also messed around for a bit, doing some one handed snatches with the bar and I helped a kid in my gym clean up his form for clean and presses. So I ended up cleaning 185 a few times too. It was really hard- I was tired and didn't realize he had that much weight on. All in all, it was a really good day.

Not a lot really, but I was a ncie afternoon so me and the guys took it easy, lifted weights, fought a bit, chatted a lot.... good way to spend a couple of hours.
I've been trying to mix up my lifting recently, so I've been doing some of the workouts from gymjones.com. They are often similar to crossfit workouts. Here's what I did yesterday:
-Tabata-style, 20 secs on, 10 secs rest rounds, 8 times per exercises, for each of the following movements. (So, a 4 mins of tabata for each of these). 1 min rest in between each exercise.
-Squats (I did deadlifts instead)
-I didn't like this workout at all. Most of the motions weren't compound enough for my liking, especially pullups. Once I did a few pullups my arms were shot, so by the time I got into my 6th and 7th round of pullups I was doing a lot of dead hanging. I don't think I'll do this again, at least not for a while.
